100% edible, carved cake with fondant accents
I really enjoy sculpting cakes! I wasn't going for hyper realism, just an overall feel of the subject. I don't use rice cereal treats or molded chocolate, especially for heads. I prefer sculpting cake, it's more challenging. It requires lots of focus and an unwillingness to surrender to the "cake rules". I do regret not having longer to spend on this cake. It was a surprise for my husband's friend who was retiring. She refused to let anyone cut the cake, and took it home. I may need to invest in an airbrush afterall.
